Sarah Bigham lives in Maryland with her kind chemist wife, three independent cats, an unwieldy herb garden, several chronic pain conditions, and near-constant outrage at the general state of the world tempered with love for those doing their best to make a difference. A Pushcart and Best of the Net nominee, Sarah’s poetry, fiction and nonfiction have appeared in a variety of great places for readers, writers and listeners. Find her at www.sgbigham.com.
*I am a community college professor. Over the years, students have shared a range of comments with me, from “You are the first gay person I have ever met” (which I know can’t really be true, but I try to meet my students where they are) to “You are an example to me of living your true life” and “I admire how you unapologetically tell us who you are.” I take these comments as a sign that living my truth makes an impact. We all have the power to change our society for the better, in small (or large) steps at a time.
